    Malaysian palm oil stocks rose 7% mom to 1.77m tonnes as at end-Jul 2022 due to higher output and imports — lower than our expectations. We project palm oil stocks to rise 13.5% mom to 2m tonnes by end-Aug 2022F due to increasing competition from Indonesian exports. We are sector Neutral – we note a lack of near-term catalysts as earnings likely peaked in 2Q22F, but 4.7% 2022F dividend yield provides support.
